      Strength does not come from winning, it is our struggle that builds our strength. When we struggle and decide not to surrender, that is strength

            I'll PM ya my cell number. Meeting for a bite or a drink either way is good with me/us. It's going to be a great time. I think I get in around 4pm on Thursday.

            Since it's Lindz's first time in Vegas and the O, it's all about her. I plan to show her around a bit Thursday then dinner and a few drinks. In 2007, we just ate at a fab 55th floor, roof top steak place that turned into full club mode over looking the strip at the Rio were we stayed. So that's an option.

            Friday, early to the expo, dinner, go out.

            Saturday expo, diinner, the O Fig/202/Mens BB, after party... but which one?

            Sunday, Flamingo Gold's gym workout, sight seeing, maybe a show.

            Monday, sight see, hang before the late flight out.

              My dad, a great cook and Vegas frequent flyer, recommends the buffet at Planet Hollywood. It has a large variety & enough seafood to rival the best pure seafood buffets in Vegas!

              My old fav was the MGM buffet & he says PH blows it away. Bellagio is another good one of top.

              Steak houses, the best is at the Palms, top of the Rio Hotel, and at NY NY to name a few tops!

                Go early to the expo. Friday is lighter traffic than Saturday. Pros under contract make their rounds period but you'll see more Friday than Saturday as far as the O male competitors.

                Cabs were hard to catch after the O competition as they flood the front of the casino but not way out by the arena. There are plenty of desperate car/limo services waiting and we talked the down to $40 which included a ride back to the Rio to grab something and then to the strip. A cab would not make a stop without more money!

                Steaks: The Strip House at Planet Hollywood, Gallagher's at New York New York, Fiore at the Rio Hotel is good but VooDoo Steak on the 50-51st floor of the Rio is great food plus a good party. This one is my Thursday night plan.

                Others: Nove' for Italian at the Palms, Nobu for sushi at Hard Rock.

                Shows: O by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio, Mystere by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island, Ka also Cirque du Soleil at MGM, Zumanity is sexual Cirque at NY NY & then you Criss Angel or Carrot Top at Luxor.

                Shopping: Town Square is new, Fashion Show is the old main mall, Las Vegas Premium Outlets. But remember that several casinos have shopping, mostly higher end to couture such as Bellagio and Ceasars for the largest size & variety but most top hotels have shops.

                Ceasars Palace shopping area does have a Nike Town, Cheesecake Factory and some moderate familiar shopping plus some free entertainment.

                Circus Circus is a real circus with much free to see.
                The Rio has a free carnival every hour or so.
                MGM has lions and the Mirage casino has tigers.
                Treasure Islands pirate show off the strip is brief, fun & free.

                Buffets: Village Seafood at the Rio, The Wynn, Bellagio, Planet Hollywood.

                Workout at Gold's Gym on E. Flamingo.

                I have not looked into the O related after parties as of yet. Usually major supplement companies such as BSN throw down. The current Mr O usually gets busy so Dexter Jackson may have one. There is the Ed Hardy Bikini after party. But I'm going with Mr Las Vegas and local star, Jay Cutler!

                Check the Olympia web site for what is going on free to see once in the expo such as powerlifting, strongman, bikini, figure, 202 prejudging etc.

                Meet the Olympians and the press conference are good as well.

                          No doubt. Thanks bro. I love Vegas after my first Olympia in 2007. It was cool before but with the right events plus the right people... shit it was ridiculous!

                          I almost moved there for work prior to my mom's cancer and gaining custody of my girls. Maybe down the road.

                          And I forgot one important detail people!

                          Hard Rock Hotels RehabX at the pool. They start lining up at about 6am Sunday. It's where all the "beautiful" people and rich fat bastards go for the after after Vegas partying from Saturday night.

                          If you are a fine lady, you're in. If you are a rich dude & can throw the door guys $100+ you're in. If you are a good looking, muscular guy, low on the cash flow, good luck to you and prepare to wait in line... forever maybe?

                          I fall below the latter category, although I make good cash, my daughters spend great cash! The money I spent in 2007 solo, I could of went with a guest to the Carribean for 10 days!

                          One day I will make it into RehabX but the O costs as it is. I will also rent a car that I'll never be able to purchase from Rent-A-Vette in LV, Lambo or Ferrari $1500-2000 per day. One day of course!

                                FYI: IDS has the whey shots that meet FAA regulations of 3oz liquids for air travel. Easy, convenient, no mixing for the bodybuilder traveling!

                                Thought I'd plug IDS a bit for ya Joe. I remember you from the North Americans in 2008! I'm nobody but my friend competed in the LHW, moved up to 5th this past weekend at the NA's.
